Michael and I are joined for the first part of the podcast by Larry Coon, CBA Master and writer for ESPN.com. He talks about what options the Hornets have for retaining Al-Farouq Aminu, whether the Hornets can Nick Collision-ise Jason Smith, and weighs in on Eric Gordon’s situation.

Then the two of us tackle what we saw in the Charlotte game, talk Davis, Anderson and Brian Roberts, and preview the upcoming battle in Houston.

Also, although Anthony Davis has already been better than my ridiculous expectations, he needs to stop slipping so many of those high picks. He uses it too often. Not a big worry or anything, just a remark.

Vasquez, above all, needs to become a better outside shooter. Put him next to a primary ball-handler, someone good enough to draw defensive attention, and if he can shoot well enough to force a quick close-out, he could actually do some damage out there. But I want an offense with two guards that can create off the dribble at crunch time. But if the other team has a 3 that just sits in the corner, you could move Vasquez to the 3 as well. Again, this all hinges on his ability to actually become a threat off of the ball. On another note, I caught the Dallas-Charlotte game and switched between the GS-Denver and Portland-San Antonio game last night, and those were some entertaining games. Yes, even the Charlotte one.. But my question is this: is there something wrong with Ty Lawson? Golden State has a horrid defense, and Lawson was very ineffective. In fact, at crunch time, it was all Andre Miller

In the Bobcats game the only respectable scoring from the G position was Roberts.. Vasquez and Rivers had 4 points each... Look Belinelli looked good playing with the Bulls... Then let's call it... What is Henry doing...

Are you saying that Roberts is our main guy at guard? IMO, the only player that has the potential to be starting caliber on a good team is Austin Rivers, and it's currently for his ball-handling, not his scoring, that leads me to believe that. He needs to fix that jump shot right now though.. Glad he's struggling w/ his shot, to be honest, because a shot like that will always be inconsistent
